         This option enables a transparent branch optimization that
	 makes certain almost-always-true or almost-always-false branch
	 conditions even cheaper to execute within the kernel.

	 Certain performance-sensitive kernel code, such as trace points,
	 scheduler functionality, networking code and KVM have such
	 branches and include support for this optimization technique.

84
         If it is detected that the compiler has support for "asm goto",
85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92
	 the kernel will compile such branches with just a nop
	 instruction. When the condition flag is toggled to true, the
	 nop will be converted to a jump instruction to execute the
	 conditional block of instructions.

	 This technique lowers overhead and stress on the branch prediction
	 of the processor and generally makes the kernel faster. The update
	 of the condition is slower, but those are always very rare.

config ARCH_USE_BUILTIN_BSWAP
       bool
       help
	 Modern versions of GCC (since 4.4) have builtin functions
	 for handling byte-swapping. Using these, instead of the old
	 inline assembler that the architecture code provides in the
	 __arch_bswapXX() macros, allows the compiler to see what's
	 happening and offers more opportunity for optimisation. In
	 particular, the compiler will be able to combine the byteswap
	 with a nearby load or store and use load-and-swap or
	 store-and-swap instructions if the architecture has them. It
	 should almost *never* result in code which is worse than the
	 hand-coded assembler in <asm/swab.h>.  But just in case it
	 does, the use of the builtins is optional.

	 Any architecture with load-and-swap or store-and-swap
	 instructions should set this. And it shouldn't hurt to set it
	 on architectures that don't have such instructions.

config HAVE_ARCH_VMAP_STACK
	def_bool n
	help
	  An arch should select this symbol if it can support kernel stacks
	  in vmalloc space.  This means:

	  - vmalloc space must be large enough to hold many kernel stacks.
	    This may rule out many 32-bit architectures.

	  - Stacks in vmalloc space need to work reliably.  For example, if
	    vmap page tables are created on demand, either this mechanism
	    needs to work while the stack points to a virtual address with
	    unpopulated page tables or arch code (switch_to() and switch_mm(),
	    most likely) needs to ensure that the stack's page table entries
	    are populated before running on a possibly unpopulated stack.

	  - If the stack overflows into a guard page, something reasonable
	    should happen.  The definition of "reasonable" is flexible, but
	    instantly rebooting without logging anything would be unfriendly.

	  Enable this if you want the use virtually-mapped kernel stacks

	  This is presently incompatible with KASAN because KASAN expects
	  the stack to map directly to the KASAN shadow map using a formula
	  that is incorrect if the stack is in vmalloc space.
